Formerly under the Specialized Operations Command, the newly formed Specialized Emergency Response took effect January 01, 2014 and is comprised of the following specialized units: the Emergency Task Force, the Marine Unit, and Police Dog Services.

Under the leadership of a Superintendent each of these three specialized sub-units is situated in modern, state-of-the-art facilities across the City. With a combined total of 240 highly trained officers, the Specialized Emergency Response unit is capable of delivering a coordinated and effective police emergency response on the water, in high density urban and sub-urban settings, and in isolated rural areas alike.

We are proud of our reputation as world class leaders in the delivery of a highly effective and specialized emergency police response.
